Starz pirate drama "Black Sails" will be executive producer Michael Bay's first small screen venture, though the blockbuster king already has more series in the works -- post-apocalypse series "The Last Ship" at TNT and supernatural pilot "Occult" at A&E. The premium network unveiled a new, more impressive trailer for "Black Sails" at New York Comic Con this past weekend, which you can check out below. The series, which is a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island," was created by Jon Steinberg ("Jericho") and Robert Levine and certainly looks plenty lavish. It so pleased the crowds at San Diego Comic-Con that it's already earned a second season renewal ahead of its premiere in January. Neil Marshall ("The Descent," "Game of Thrones") directed the first episode.
